Is it safe for me to continue with my pregnancy or should I discontinue?

Your OB-GYN doctor can discuss issues of safety for your pregnancy.
Pregnancy post tummy tuck
Thanks for your inquiry. Having a tummy tuck procedure and gastric sleeve should not jeopardize your pregnancy. The pregnancy may compromise the results of your tummy tuck, but it should affect your pregnancy.
Neither a tummy tuck nor a gastric sleeve will interfere with pregnancy.
Many women become pregnant and safely carry their babies to term after a tummy tuck or bariatric surgery. Neither of these procedures poses a risk to a viable pregnancy. It’s important for you to schedule an appointment with your Ob/Gyn, who can perform a thorough check up and can advise you about anything you need to know. If you decide to continue with your pregnancy, there is the likelihood that your baby will undo your tummy tuck results. You can seek revision surgery at a future date.
